24/7 DCT is a not-for-profit therapy platform. We are here to promote mental health awareness and provide affordable solutions for anyone who needs it. 24/7 DCT services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, through a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
After you sign up, we will provide you with a list of therapists that match your goals, preferences, and the nature of the challenges you are dealing with. Various therapists use different techniques and specialize in different areas, so it's critical to choose the right professional for you. While we can usually deliver a successful match, if you start the process and feel your therapist isn't a good fit for you, you can request to be paired with a new therapist.
Licensed, qualified, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD / PsyD), licensed marital and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social workers (LCSW / LMSW), or licensed professional therapists are on the panel of 24/7 DCT (LPC). They all hold a Masters or a Doctorate degree in their profession. After successfully completing the requisite schooling, tests, training, and practice, they have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board in the United States or certified by their regional country board. While their backgrounds, experience, and skill differ, they all have at least three years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience.
Every therapist we bring to the platform is fully licensed and in good standing, thanks to the efforts of our staff. Applicants must present valid licensing papers as well as evidence of identification. We then double-check their licensing information with the appropriate state licensing board. Aside from confirming credentials, each potential provider must pass a case study test assessed by a qualified clinician and be evaluated in a video interview. As a result of this stringent procedure, only roughly 20% of therapists who seek to practise via 24/7 DCT are accepted. We also offer the entire licensure information for each practitioner so you may do your own research too.
24/7 DCT may be right for you if you're looking to improve the quality of your life. Whenever there is anything that interferes with your happiness or prevents you from achieving your goals, we may be able to help. We also have therapists who specialize in specific issues such as stress, anxiety, relationships, parenting, depression, addictions, eating, sleeping, trauma, anger, family conflicts, LGBT matters, grief, religion, self esteem, and more. 24/7 DCT is not the right solution for you if any of the following is true: You are a minor or you are under the care of a legal guardian You are in an urgent crisis or an emergency situation You do not have a device that can connect to the Internet or you do not have a reliable Internet connection
The professionals who work through 24/7 DCT are licensed and credentialed therapists who are certified by their state's board or their regional country board to provide therapy. However, while the service may have similar benefits, it's not capable of substituting for traditional face-to-face therapy in every case. Please note that your provider won't be able to make any official diagnosis to fulfill any court order or prescribe medication.
Once you have picked your therapist, you and your therapist will get a dedicated "room", which will be your private and secure place to communicate. In this room, you can discuss your concerns and issues with your therapist. Your therapist will then read your messages, and respond with questions, feedback, insights, and guidance. You can exchange messages with your therapist at any time, from anywhere, using any Internet-connected device. The room is open 24/7 and since messaging is in real-time it doesn't require scheduling. Instead, you can choose whenever you want to write or respond to your therapist. You will get a notification by email when the therapist has sent you a message.
